Beginner Plan to Walk in a Five K event!

Now is the time to get out walking!

There is nothing better for getting you out the door walking than having a goal to walk toward.  How about a five K distance?  It is doable ... even if you haven't walked in a very long time there is still a possibility if you just start to walk on a regular basis. One of my favorite walking websites is About.com Walking with Wendy Bumgardner.  Wendy is a certified marathon coach (RRCA). She is an avid walker who keeps abreast of the latest research and information on walking for weight loss, fitness and sport. 
She has a great blog that every walker or  aspiring walker should sign up for.

This week Wendy has an article that speaks to Training for 5 K Race Event For Beginners.

Please check it out and consider registering right away for the  K W Walking Classic and walking in support of mental health on Sunday, May 10th.  You won't regret it and you will actually be doing yourself a favor both physically and mentally!  We all want to be healthier and it is as easy as walking out the door.

Go to www.mimiwalks.com for more information about registration.

iPad Mini ...Still Time to WIN!

YES ... we are giving away an Apple iPad Mini  this year!!  You still have a chance to win if you act before midnight on April First!

Anyone who registers before our April 1st deadline will have the last chance for the early bird rates and their name in the draw for the iPad Mini!

Remember that we have a family rate this year for 4 members of a family that want to walk in the 5K or the 10K races (you can mix it up). The price is $100.00 for the family if you register as a group. You can register by downloading a family application and sending it in or you can register online as a group.

Everyone gets a quality athletic shirt, medal for finishing, gift bag and the great feeling that comes with helping a great cause.


Our cause is mental health and we are approaching the 1000th pair of shoes (that is one thousand!!) that we have been able to provide for people on fixed incomes who are using fitness to recover and maintain their mental health.

It is going to be a stellar year for Minds In Motion ... come and be a part of the fun!

As for me ... time to get out and walk30 ... getting ready for May 10th and the K W Walking Classic.
